The Darkness Within - Lisa Stone

I have never ever felt such a strong negative emotion towards any character as I did for Jason/Shane in this book. I literally wanted to reach through the pages and put my hands on his throat and just squeeze. This character was the most despicable character ever. I think what grated me the most was how the author gave the reader his feelings, beliefs and reasons that he felt he could do these things to people. Not only was he horrendous to women, he was plain out horrible and rude to everyone who came in contact with him. Except, of course, those, and at times, he needed something done for him. Then he could be the most charming person ever.

This, of course, made for a pretty good book that I was seriously interested in. However, I did feel that there was a lot of the book that was included purely to add length to the book. Those parts did drag along and I ended up skipping several pages.

Overall, I think the book was a good read, just lengthy in some areas and repetitive. The cellular memory part was something that I was not aware of and was an interesting concept in the book. And, I still want to put my hands around that man's neck. HA!!

Thanks to Avon Books UK and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
